Environ Collagen Boost Facial Experience at Karma Beauty: The Review

So far 2016 has been non-stop and life has been pretty hectic to say the least. I love keeping myself busy and working hard, but when the opportunity comes along for a little 'me time', I'm not one to turn it down. It's all about the balance, work hard, play hard.

This week my Mum and I were invited to experience an Environ Collagen Boost Facial at the wonderful Karma Beauty in Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan. We felt like we had been working a little too hard recently so we jumped at the chance of a little bit of pampering.

When we arrived we were greeted by Mel and her team who offered us drinks and the chance to relax whilst we waited for our appointment. The salon has a relaxed and cosy feel and we immediately felt at ease. We couldn't wait to experience our facials!

Karma Beauty is situated just off the main high street in Cowbridge and benefits from private parking and late night appointments. Perfect for a mid-week after work treat.

Before we got started Mel explained to to my Mum and I the benefits of the Environ system and what results we were likely to expect. The Environ Collagen Boost Facial is a vitamin A and peptide-packed treatment that promises to boost collagen, soften fine lines and tighten lax skin.

Environ was developed in the 1980's by Dr Des Fernandes who has been rated amongst the top five plastic surgeons in the world. He was the first to use Vitamin A in high enough dose that help counteract the harmful effects of the environment, pollution and stress, and create radiant, visibly improved skin.

Through intensive research he discovered the essential role vitamin A plays in skin health. He became determined to create a skin care range that would maintain healthy skin, especially as the incidence of sun-related skin disorders was growing worldwide.

Mum and I shared a treatment room so we had our facials side by side which was lovely, it enabled us to chat and discuss our day whilst enjoying the treatment.

Mel started off by removing my make up with a cleansing oil that felt amazing, she then used the same product for a second cleanse to really clean and hydrate my skin. After my double cleanse I had a mixture of collagen and vitamin A brushed all over my face and neck. This was an usual sensation as it had a cool, jelly like consistency. 

It was massaged into my face using an Ionzyme DF facial machine which uses a small, flat ended metal wand to penetrate the high doses of vitamins and collagen into the skins surface, it almost feels like an ultrasound on your face

After 10 mins, what was left of the collagen and vitamin A was removed with a gorgeously warm towel. Then to finish  I was treated to a moisturizing face, neck and shoulder massage which was heavenly.

Mel then left Mum and I to come round to our senses and brought us a glass of chilled water to hydrate. When we went back to reception the team had prepared individual treatment sheets outlining the different products that had been used on us, and what skin care they would recommend to us going forward. 

A week after my Collagen Boost Facial, my skin is still glowing and radiant. I have found that my usually pesky dry patches are fading and my skin appears plumper. Even my friends have been noticing the difference! I will definitely be back for another treatment soon, I'm 100% an Environ convert.

Thank you so much to the lovely Mel and the girls at Karma Beauty for inviting me along to experience their Environ Collagen Boost Facial. The facial I received was for review purposes and complimentary, all opinions are my own.
